Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin’s bloodthirsty private army of mercenaries, known as the Wagner Group, is raping women in a South African maternity ward.
Putin’s Mercenaries Airlifted to Ukraine
The Wagner Group and several other smaller-sized Russian private armies are all believed to be controlled personally by Putin.
The Wagner Group itself has neo-Nazi trappings. Its fighters are known for being highly efficient, but also for their extreme, unspeakable brutality towards both enemy combatants and civilians.
According to one unverified Ukrainian estimate, more than 9,000 Wagner Group mercenaries have fought in Ukraine in the 2.5-month-long war so far. Some 3,000 of those have been killed.
Ukrainian defense analysts and government advisers noted the Wagner mercenaries are the only Russian invaders who display a high degree of fighting morale and efficiency.
The RSOTM Telegram channel run by Wagner private military contractors currently in Ukraine said that either “there will be a mobilization or we will lose the war.” They think they need 600-800k people to defeat Ukraine. https://t.co/IxGSxNYdUA pic.twitter.com/7pRmYBNkUN

The Wagner Group stepped up its operations in Popasna in recent days and Chechnya's Ramzan Kadyrov claimed Russia was on the verge of winning. Oleksiy Arestovych denied that Russia had won, but it appears as if Ukraine has in fact retreated pic.twitter.com/611d5v6J4W

JFC. Russian mercenaries from the notoriously brutal Wagner Group — often (and rightly) called Putin’s “private army” — allegedly raped women in a maternity ward in the Central African Republic (CAR), including multiple women who had just given birth.https://t.co/7MlBgNtIn0

Rapists in Central Africa Are Also Butchers in Ukraine
According to a report by The Daily Beast, on April 10, troops from Putin’s Wagner Group committed harrowing crimes against pregnant women in a hospital in Bangui. This is the capital of the Central African Republic.
At least three of Putin’s mercenaries entered the local maternity ward and raped pregnant women. They also raped women who had just recently given birth and several health workers.
Officials are now quoted as saying this is the third time Russian mercenaries raping women in the maternity ward has been reported.
The Wagner Group has been active in the civil war in the Central African Republic for the past two years; its troops are also known to have committed horrifying war crimes there.
It is quite possible that the same Russian mercenary troops who raped the pregnant women and healthcare workers in Bangui are already stationed in Ukraine.
Just as the report about the maternity ward rapes in Central Africa came out, there were reports on Saturday night about Putin’s mercenary brutes shooting to kill innocent civilian refugees trying to escape from Popasna.
Serhiy Haidai, the Ukrainian regional head of the military administration of Luhansk, announced on social media the situation in Popasna is due to a heavy presence of Wagner mercenaries and hardware.
He described the Russian attacks on the ground as a “terrible situation.”
Russia’s command has indeed been concentrating all forces it has left on the Donbas region. That’s since its invasion failed all over the map of Ukraine in February and March.
The current fighting in Ukraine aside, the Wagner Group saw its biggest defeat so far at the hands of the US military in the Syrian desert in February 2018.
This is when between 200 and 600 of Putin’s feared mercenaries were wiped out by American fire within a matter of a couple of hours.
Russia: welcomes Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Taliban in Moscow; shells Babyn Yar and Drobytsky Yar Holocaust memorials in Ukraine; Putin’s warlord Utkun chooses „Wagner“ callsign and has SS runes tattoos over his body. Now you really wonder, where Lavrov‘s shit comes from? pic.twitter.com/inimoHgAAt

Numerous reports that Putin regime forces from Chechnya as well as Wagner mercenaries have fully conquered #Popasna after six weeks of intense fighting. Would be a serious setback for Ukraine in Luhansk province. However Popasna is not connected to any other 🇺🇦 town in the area. pic.twitter.com/QLb1PqcKyB
